    I have worked at Big Bear for 2.5 years now and I will be the first to stand up for my boss. She has NEVER yelled at any of her employees, yet alone someone who comes in the resort to help. All of our employees are very nice and would drop anything to help anyone. I don't know where you could've came up with this review.

    My family and I have booked 3 condo/townhouse for July of this year. I have not been able to find out any information as to how many rooms or beds they have. Any additional info is appreciated. This is what happens when I have my husband book something instead of myself, he forgets the important questions :)
